Abstract:
The present investigation entitled “Effect of biofertilizer and mulch on pea (<em>Pisum sativum</em> L.)” was conducted during <em>Rabi</em> season 2017-18 at the Experimental farm, Department of Agriculture, Mata Gujri College, Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab, India. The experiment was laid out in factorial randomized block design with three replications. The treatments consisted of four mulches, M<sub>0</sub>-No much, M<sub>1</sub>-Paddy straw@5t/ha, M<sub>2</sub>-Maize stubbles@4t/ha, M<sub>3</sub>-Saw dust@10t/ha and four <em>Rhizobium</em> doses, B<sub>0</sub>- <em>Rhizobium @</em>0g/kg of seeds, B<sub>1</sub>-<em>Rhizobium</em>@20g/kg of seeds, B<sub>2</sub>-<em>Rhizobium</em>@25g/kg of seeds, B<sub>3</sub>-<em>Rhizobium</em>@30g/kg of seeds and their combinations. In <em>Rhizobium</em>, maximum pod length, number of pods, weight of seeds, pod yield, shelling percentage, ascorbic acid and total soluble soilds were recorded with application of <em>Rhizobium</em>@30g/kg of seeds. In mulch, maximum number of pods, weight of seeds, pod yield and shelling percentage were recorded with application of saw dust@10t/ha while total soluble solids was recorded with paddy straw@5t/ha, maximum ascorbic acid was recorded with no mulch. In interaction, maximum number of pods, weight of seeds, pod yield, shelling percentage was recorded with application of <em>Rhizobium</em>@30g/kg of seeds and saw dust@10t/ha. <em>Rhizobium</em>@30g/kg of seeds and no mulch resulted in maximum ascorbic acid. Maximum total soluble solid was recorded with application of no biofertilizer and paddy straw@5t/ha.
